Perfect Moment Monday: Nooner

“Whatcha doin?” the baritone voice on the phone asked.

“Working.” I said, lest he think I was a slacker.

“What are you GONNA be doing in half an hour?” he persisted.

“What are you getting at?” I countered.

“My meeting finished early and I’m in the neighborhood. Wanna meet me for lunch at [Our Place]?”

After briefly considering the can of lentil soup I was going to heat up, I declared, “I’m out the door.”

And that’s how I had an impromptu lunch date with my handsome husband.


Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.

Once a week we engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world. Everyone is welcome to join.

  1. Aawww c’mon! I was expecting a booty call! Well, I hope he at least picked up the tab.

    Next up: try the “sun-downer”…and I’m not talking about a yoga pose!

  2. How awesome is it that you married a man who knows that a lunchdate is almost better than the other kind of nooner?! And I know I shouldn’t wish my children older, but can I tell you how much I look forward to the day when they are all in school and I can grab a lunchdate with my husband?!
